We are in pre-production on a feature and really trying to go Super16 with the hope/dream of getting into Sundance. My low-budget post flow takes me into digibeta, and I've been advised that if someone really wants to distribute the film, we can always take selects into HD later. (Why spend $ on HD transfer if movie's not going to get bought/distributed). But that's a bit of a catch 22 because I'd love to put my best foot forward at Sundance and screen in HD. The problem is I don't know what the majority of people are screening in at Sundance, and more importantly how well digibeta looks projected. Of course the other option is starting with HD in the 1st place and I'm screening Varicam footage today on a big screen. Thanks in advance for your replies!
